The Oppo K1 is coming to India on Wednesday, February 6. Oppo has confirmed the launch of the first-ever smartphone in the K series, and Flipkart has also set up a dedicated page for the Oppo K1 which means the phone will be available on the e-commerce site. The biggest highlight of the upcoming Oppo phone is that it is one of the most affordable phones with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The Oppo K1 has been launched in China already, so pretty much everything is known about the device. It was announced with a starting price of CNY 1,599 (roughly Rs. 16,900) for the base model with 4GB of RAM, while the 6GB RAM variants costs CNY 1,799 (roughly Rs. 19,000). You can expect the India pricing of the Oppo K1 to fall in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment as well.
Oppo’s upcoming mid-range smartphone will likely be the cheapest phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Apart from this, the phone also highlights a powerful mid-range Snapdragon 660 chipset and a waterdrop display and a 3D glass back.
The Oppo K1 sports a 6.4-inch FHD+ (1080×2340) display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and over 90 per cent screen-to-body ratio. Teh Snapdragon 660 chipset is paired with up to 6GB of RAM and the phone is offered with 64GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.
The Oppo K1 houses a 3,600mAh battery and sports dual cameras on the back. The camera system includes a 16MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor. On the front, the Oppo K1 gets a typical 25MP selfie camera for crisp and detailed selfies. The Oppo K series is set to be online-only, which would be a first for the company. We will know more about the pricing and availability on February 6 at 12pm.
